East meets West
World Beat meets New Age.
Ricky and I first met around 10 years ago. In 2013 we were both nominated for a ZMR Music Award for Best New Age Album. Sitting together, each of us thought the other was going to win ...but we both lost!
We decided then that one day we would combine our diverse yet complementary musical styles and collaborate on a project.
This musical collaboration has been years in the making. Along with our respective endeavors we've continued to hold our vision for the album that's become Wild Monsoon --
a celebration of the music in nature,
and an encouragement to find harmony and balance.
Just days before Ricky's 2nd Grammy win (for Divine Tides with Stewart Copeland.)
we completed the mixes for this epic project.
Ricky's keen melodic and cinematic sensibilities combined with my own genre-blending innovations and grooves ---
the kind of mashup that's become my calling card -- created this compelling musical vision of nature.
In addition to the power duo of Gregoli/Kej, the album features many of India's finest musical artists, as well as South African flautist Wouter Kellerman on "Mahatma"
...and the enchanting and powerful vocals of
#kimberlyhaynes on "Badra (Rain)".

"The musical duo David Vito Gregoli & Ricky Kej is an exceptionally gifted and a rare combination in the world of music, which has achieved a never-before feat in the album Wild Monsoon."
